recycling of any waste electrical and electronic equipment

the Decree, Kramer Electronics is required to finance the

electrical and electronic equipment that you buy from Kramer
Electronics after August 13th 2005, when that new equipment
eventually becomes waste. This is referred to as new WEEE.
Electronics products are very competitively priced. Any
new increase in operating costs for manufacturers such as
Kramer Electronics is normally reflected in a price increase
in the product. However, instead of increasing the prices
of our products Kramer Electronics has decided to share
these new environmental costs directly with our customers.
We believe in being transparent with you on any new environmental
costs that our products need to address.
approach to sharing these new environmental costs are:
pay for transportation of your WEEE to Kramer Electronics’s
appointed recycler in France.
Kramer Electronics pays for the costs of treatment,
recycling and recovery of the WEEE to meet the targets
set by the Decee.
Electronics pays for the costs of data management and
reporting to the Agency for Environment and Energy Management
(ADEME) to demonstrate compliance with all administrative
requirements of the Decree.
Electronics has established a recycling contract with the European Advanced Recycling Network (EARN)
and will cover any costs of treatment, recycling and recovery
of the equipment on arrival at the EARN facility
New WEEE that arises from the purchase of Kramer Electronics
products will be classed as non-hazardous waste. It is your
responsibility to arrange and pay for costs of collection
and transportation to EARN. Under Decree 98-679
1998 Relating to Road Transport, the Trade and the Broking
of Waste, you are free to use any carrier you wish to collect
and transport non-hazardous WEEE to the EARN recycler,
